Danubius Hotel Astoria City Center

District V, Kossuth Lajos utca 19–21, Budapest, Budapest, 1053, Hungary

Constructed between 1912 and 1914, the Astoria has a fascinating and turbulent history. The first independent Hungarian government was formed here in 1918, but later the Nazi high command used the Astoria more or less as its headquarters, as did the Soviet forces during the ill-fated revolution of 1956. Nowadays, rooms are genteel, spacious, and comfortable. The hotel's restaurant, with its dripping chandeliers and pink marble columns, is a wonderful place to relive the Central European coffeehouse tradition, even if it is, sadly, often empty.

PROS

  • decent value for money
  • central-enough location

CONS
